Perfect Fried Fish


My husband loves fish sandwiches, I don’t. So we compromise and I have my salmon and he has a fish sandwich.

Fried Fish

2 tilapia fillets
1/2 c flour
1 t baking powder
1 egg
1/4 c Buttermilk
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in a skillet. Pat fillet a dry and set aside. Combine all ingredients but fish in a shallow bowl.  Add whatever seasonings you like. Add water until batter reaches pancake batter consistency. Coat fish and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side.


Short Ribs and Polenta


Short Ribs and Polenta

4-6 short ribs
1 T oil
4 shallots
1 carrot
1 c beef stock
1 c Guinness
1 T Dijon mustard
4 sprigs rosemary
Salt and Pepper

Heat small Dutch oven medium high. Add oil and brown short ribs on all sides. Add shallots and brown. Then add carrots. Dump in Guinness and reduce heat, scraping brown bits off sides and bottom. Add beef stock, mustard, and rosemary. Simmer on low for 40 minutes.

Turn sauce into gravy by adding a little corn starch in water and serve over polenta. Top with a little blue cheese.

This makes a great leftover.
